NYFW's Best Music: 14 Songs Heard On The Runway

UPDATE: Get your relaxation on this Sunday by kicking back and listening to some seriously awesome tunes. This story was originally published on February 12.
Fashion Week in NYC is full of all our favorite things — fabulous parties, celeb sightings, street-style eye candy, and, of course, the shows themselves. While we can analyze each look until our fingers cramp up, it's those rockin' tunes that really make the clothes come alive — and get the adrenaline pumping. The moment the first note plays, you know it's your cue to officially get excited…and, whip out Shazam? Well, okay, we did that part for you. And we promise, there's no better soundtrack for strutting down the street than this stuff.
Luckily for you (and your iPod!), we were out in full force, in every front row, hunting down all the right tracks. Whether it's old-school rap from Alex Wang, an African-inspired drumbeat from Cushnie Et Ochs, or an Amy Winehouse moment from Jason Wu, these jams will help you get your groove on just like Anna Wintour. Click through to listen to all our top Shazam'd tunes, and then practice your fiercest model strut (in the mirror, obviously).
